7 WHAT type of student am I? I am a new student interested in a degree or certificate This is also known as curricular. This means you re working towards completing an associate degree, certificate, or career studies certificate in one of our programs of study. Students seeking a degree or certificate are eligible for financial aid. I am a new student not enrolled in a degree or certificate program Maybe you re just taking a class, or you simply have not yet enrolled in a program. This is also known as non-curricular. Please note that non-curricular students are not eligible for financial aid. I am a transfer student Do you have credits from another school that you want to transfer here? Have an official copy of your transcript sent to JSRCC for a formal evaluation. If you are attending a school within the Virginia Community College System, an official transcript is not required; however, you need to complete a form to request that your other VCCS college credits be considered for transfer. Plan early and submit these items two to four weeks prior to registering for classes. I am a current or returning student If you have registered for classes at Reynolds within the last three years, you do not need to apply for admission again. As long as you are in good academic standing and have no outstanding financial obligations or restrictions on file, you can register for classes through My JSRCC. I am a transient student This means you re also taking classes at another college or university, but you want to take a class (or classes) here to satisfy credits and/or degree requirements there. If you are a student who attends another college and are planning on coming to JSRCC for a short period of time, perhaps over the summer, you are considered a transient student. Transient students should seek approval from the advisor at their home institution and complete the Transient Student Approval Form (reynolds.edu/forms) in order to waive placement tests and course pre-requisites. I am a high school student Yes, you can take classes at Reynolds while you re still in high school! Dual Enrollment students take Reynolds classes and receive dual credit towards college as well as high school. Check with your guidance counselor to see if Dual Enrollment classes are offered at your high school. Concurrent Enrollment high school students take classes at Reynolds and receive only college credit. I am an international student Non-U.S. citizens seeking eligibility for in-state tuition rates must provide passports and immigration documents to the College (Student Success Centers or Admissions and Records Office) when applying for admission or prior to enrolling. Individuals seeking admission as international students (F-1 Visa) must contact the College s international student advisor (ISA) directly for assistance. F-1 students are required to register in person with the ISA in the Admissions and Records Office, Parham Road Campus. To make an appointment, students should call (804) or I just registered for a class, however, it is not listed in Blackboard. Your class should be available in Blackboard within 24 hours.

8 FINANCIAL AID Financial Aid To ensure that financial aid awards are made in time for students to register for classes and pay their tuition and fees with an approved award, students should be admitted into an eligible program of study and complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) in sufficient time to ensure that it is received by the Pell Processing Center no later than: April 15, 2013 for Fall 2013 September 16, 2013 for Spring 2014 If necessary, corrections and/or verification documents required to complete the FAFSA should be submitted promptly to a campus Student Success Center. The deadline for submitting requested documents to correct and/or verify the data on the Student Aid Reports (SARs) is 10 business days from the date of the Financial Aid office correspondence sent to the student. A student should be prepared to pay tuition and fees if corrections are processed by the Financial Aid office after June 17, 2013 for Fall 2013; November 15, 2013 for Spring 2014 and April 15, 2014 for Summer Students may apply late for financial aid, but there is no guarantee that award eligibility and notification will be in time to assist with tuition, fees, and books for the current registration. Students who are eligible and have been awarded financial aid will receive an listing the types and amounts of aid. Anticipated financial aid will be automatically posted to student accounts, and tuition and fees will automatically be charged to each student s financial aid after the last day to drop a class with a refund. If financial aid is not enough to cover all charges, the amount remaining is the responsibility of the student and is due according to the tuition payment deadlines found on page 3. Students with web access may use My JSRCC to check on their financial aid and student account. After logging into My JSRCC, students may view their financial aid and student account in the Finances section of the Student Center. Payment Due for Financial Aid Students Who Withdraw Students receiving federal financial aid who withdraw from all courses before attending more than 60% of a given semester, or who do not complete the entire semester, will owe a portion of their financial aid back to the federal government and incur a liability with the College for any tuition and/or book expenses that no longer are payable with federal financial aid monies. Satisfactory Academic Progress Students must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) to receive financial aid. Satisfactory academic progress means successfully finishing your program of study within an acceptable timeframe. SOME SAP FACTS Grades of F, U, W, I or R negatively impact your SAP equally. Time does not repair poor performance. Classes taken five, 10, 15, or 20 years ago can affect your SAP today. SAP standards are tougher than the College Academic Standing requirements. Academic Renewal does not automatically reinstate your eligibility. Satisfactory Academic Progress Standards A student must successfully complete two-thirds (67%) of all the credit and developmental hours they attempt. Completion rates will be assessed at the end of a student s first semester. Successful completion means a grade of A, B, C, D, S, or P. Grades of F, U, W, I, R and missing grades represent hours not completed. Federal law requires the College to count all credits attempted at the College. How to Keep Your Financial Aid To keep eligibility for loans, grants and work-study, students should: Successfully complete classes, avoid excessively withdrawing from classes, and avoid receiving grades of F, U, R or I (a D is better than a W). Submit the FAFSA each year by April 15. Submit requested documents in a timely manner. 7 J. SARGEANT Reynolds Community College

9 Maximum Time Frame The U.S. Department of Education expects students to complete their plan requirements within 150% of the published length of that plan in credit hours. Developmental/ESL hours do not count in this total. For example, a student in the Accounting AAS plan (length 66 credit hours) will lose his/her eligibility after 99 attempted credit hours if he/she has not finished the plan. Students can calculate their own 150% rate by finding the total credits in their plan from the catalog. Total Plan Credits x 1.5 = Note: Transfer credits are included in the 150% calculation. Grade Point Average Students must meet the following cumulative grade point standards to be eligible for aid: Attempted Credit Hours Minimum GPA The standards in the table above are absolute minimums. Students should strive to do much better than the minimum. If You Do Not Meet the Academic Standards The Financial Aid office checks each student s eligibility at the end of each semester (Fall, Spring, and Summer) and cancels future aid for students who do not meet the satisfactory academic progress standards. The Financial Aid office will notify students of their status by placing a message on My JSRCC and by sending s to a student s VCCS address. Appeals Students with mitigating circumstances (personal illness, death of immediate family member, etc.) that occurred during the problem semester(s) may go to a campus Student Success Center to obtain a Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Appeal form or download the form from the financial aid website at reynolds.edu/ financialaid. d forms should have copies of documents that confirm the mitigating circumstances and should be returned to the Student Success Center by the deadline on the form. Please note that students are only allowed two SAP appeal approvals at Reynolds. Students should work closely with their academic advisor and choose their courses wisely. Students who are uncertain about their SAP status should consult a financial aid specialist in a Student Success Center. Purchasing Books Using Financial Aid Financial aid recipients may charge books to their aid from August 16, 2013 September 6, The following stipulations apply to the process of book purchasing: You must be enrolled in classes to charge or return books. You must have financial aid funds available after tuition and fees are paid. If your only financial aid award is the Commonwealth Grant or Part-Time Assistance Program (PTAP) grant, you will not be able to charge books. Try to make all of your purchases at one time.

23 Taking ClASSes Online Center for Distance Learning Take classes from your home, office, or wherever there is Internet access. Reynolds offers options for students with busy work schedules, family responsibilities or other demands that make it difficult to attend traditional on-campus classes. Reynolds now offers three kinds of distance learning courses through the Center for Distance Learning. 1. Online courses: All course work and interactions with the instructor and classmates are completed online. The course is accessed through Blackboard. 2. distance Learning courses with in person or proctor requirement: Most of the instruction is online; however, students will be required to make a limited number of trips to campus for labs, presentations and other class activities or to a community site for clinicals or internships. Some courses may require proctored testing that can be done at Reynolds Testing Centers, testing sites at other VCCS colleges or any approved site outside of the state of Virginia. 3. teleconferencing/video-conferencing courses: Students meet on-site at one of the Reynolds campuses, at another VCCS college or at a connected off-campus site. Class meetings are scheduled weekly, just like on-campus classes. The instructor is connected to the class by a closed video network. Students see the instructor and students at other sites on television monitors in the classroom. Some instruction and communications will be in Blackboard or via the Internet. Students should carefully read section notes before registering for a distance learning course. Section notes will indicate the specific kind of distance learning course for that section. Visit reynolds.edu for registration information and procedures or refer to page 14. The last dates to register for any fall semester distance learning course are: August 23, 2013 for the 1st eight-week session September 23, 2013 for the 12-week session August 27, 2013 for the 16-week (regular) session October 21, 2013 for the 2nd eight-week session Hybrid In an effort to provide both flexibility in course schedules and the benefits of face-to-face, on-campus instruction, Reynolds is now offering a range of hybrid courses. Hybrid courses are credit courses that require both online and on-campus class meetings. In these courses, half of the instruction will be in the classroom with the instructor and the other half of the course will be completed online. Many courses will require one meeting per week on campus; evening and Saturday classes may meet on campus on alternating weeks. Students must be proficient in basic computer skills and be able to attend the required on-campus class meetings in order to be successful in these courses. Students should carefully read the section comments in the schedule before registering for any hybrid course. Hybrid course sections will have the following section identifiers: HD hybrid section with on-campus meeting at the Downtown Campus HP hybrid section with on-campus meeting at the Parham Road Campus HW hybrid section with on-campus meeting at the Goochland Campus Is online learning right for you?
